Gotcha! Data Backup is used to backup user data from a system before reinstalling a computer - or to transfer the data to another computer. Many of the much needed areas that Technicians tend to need to backup are included.

It can be used on a system running Windows. It can also detect multiple Windows drives. This is helpful when you attach a customers drive as a slave drive on your system by connecting their drive internally in your computer or through USB. It also will work on WinPE. Another useful feature it has is the ability to Move Files to your backup location instead of copying them.

    Hi, I am not saying that a date vesrioning is a bad idea, it's just I don't like it- such a versioning scheme shows nothing about the history/maturity of the product. So I am not suggesting that you revert to the previous scheme you used, I simply prefer version number to release date (of course release date can be an addition to version number).

    I have to say that is the craziest reason I have heard for someone to give such a low score on a program.

    Out of curiosity... what is the downside to using a release date for the version system? I internally release this program often and it is easier for me to see when the techs in my repair shop have downloaded a release.

    I am willing to switch it back to a normal versioning system if there is a valid enough reason behind it. I'm not stuck on using a dated version. But I am very curious what the versioning does to your computer which would force you to discontinue using it? The date also follows a numbering system that will always be higher then the previous version. It will tell you when it was released... and the last number is a build number.

    Does anyone have an idea as to why a dated versioning system would be a bad idea? Because I am open to suggestions. ;-)

    The only disappointment is the new versioning scheme- when a program discards version number in favour of release date, I immediately discard it- the latest example was SMPlayer, now I am dumping Gotcha! Backup Utility.

    We are currently using this for backing up client PC's for a Windows 7 migration. We were currently using a backup tool created by dell which we paid thousands for. I told my fellow techs about this as weve been using it since. Very fast and gets EVERYTHING.. Made our job much easier. I highly recommend this program to any tech that is looking for a good and efficient backup program.
